Flower Pictures and Blogging How to's

Here are some more flower pictures, over Easter weekend, we went to Birmingham and visited the Botanical Gardens.  The gardens are beautiful and best of all it is free.  


        



I am trying to improve my blogging skills and my friend, Alessandra from justbehappy, has taught me how to add a link to her shop.  She is a super talented crochet artist and has a wonderful blog.  Thank you Alessandra.  Enjoy the flowers!

Happy Earth Day!  I have so many flower pictures, I thought I would share some more to celebrate Mother Earth.... 

Did you know a particular Maple tree has these flowers?
  
Grant Park has these beautiful native Azaleas they are so gorgeous and all different colors.



Tulips so delicate and lovely... these are great pictures.

 Ending with a Hydrangea, puffy snowball of brilliance.

I am hooked on photographing flowers, the colors the beauty and brilliance of nature is truly inspiring.  Enjoy the beauty of everyday!

Glenwood Park Farmers Market

In our neighborhood we have a new Farmer's Market,  and for the rest of the year, I hope to be a vendor every other weekend.  The last market was the Saturday before Easter, and it was a cold, and cloudy day, but I did make a few sales.  

This is how I set up my tables, so everything can be seen.  It is a great way to get new ideas, I am making some larger flowers, and started making some other barrettes, they should be on my store soon.  I also received a few custom orders which I delivered once they were finished.  

For now when it is not raining we will be outside, until it is too hot and buggy then we will move indoors again.  I have to remember my sunscreen, even though it was cloudy I still managed to get a little pink.  Now time  to create more inventory!

Rain, Sunshine and Flowers








Recently in Atlanta, we have had much rain, and our drought is diminishing, some have said it is ended, but it is only April and we are sure to have a super hot, super humid long summer.  Anyway, we live in a condo across from Grant Park, after it rains and everything is wet and it is still cloudy, the atmosphere for taking pictures is superb.  I took these pictures while wearing my rain boots and walking my dog.  Enjoy!
